More daft responses to the Florida school shootings

School shooting: Teachers in Pennsylvania get 16in bats after Florida - BBC News

All 500 teachers of Millcreek School District near Erie got a 16in (41cm) bat in the wake of the Parkland, Florida high school attack in February.

Though the bats are largely symbolic, Superintendent William Hall said, they are there as a “last resort”.

Symbolic of what in particular?

Having watched too many zombie movies maybe?

This is just getting offensive and my teacher friend from Florida agrees.
